How Crestron Lighting Creates a Healthy, Beautiful, Easy-to-Manage Home

The Right Lighting Helps Restore Energy and Improves Sleep

How Crestron Lighting Creates a Healthy, Beautiful, Easy-to-Manage Home

We go to the gym, take long walks around the neighborhood, eat more fruits and vegetables, and try to remember to fill our water glass at least eight times a day. Yet, despite our best efforts, we may still find our energy waning and our sleep cycles disrupted. What’s going on? 

While there are numerous reasons for low energy, one of the common ones can be traced back to lighting. Yes, those bright lights that help us read, accomplish tasks, work on our computers, and keep us safe may be one of the root causes of our imbalance. 

Fortunately, there are steps we can take to make a healthier home environment. One of those is utilizing a Crestron lighting system. So, let's see what this lighting solution can do for your Scottsdale, AZ home.

Blue Light—Red Light

The color of light has a tremendous effect on our moods and energy levels. For example, stare at a bright, white light for any length of time, and you may start feeling agitated and a little restless. However, when the light changes into a soft, warm yellow-orange hue, you may begin to feel more relaxed.

It ends up that light plays a significant role in our body’s daily rhythm. At one time, the sun ruled our existence. Without artificial lighting, we woke with the sun’s rays and settled in when darkness fell. 

Fading daylight signals our pineal glands to produce more melatonin, the hormone that brings a sense of relaxation and drowsiness. On the other hand, sunlight increases the brain’s level of serotonin, the “happy” hormone that helps us feel calm and focused.

The availability of 24/7 light has disturbed this delicate balance, causing sleepless nights and less productive days. 

The Power of Crestron Lighting

The cool white, blue-toned daylight seems to make our mind more productive and focused, while the warm orange-red hues at the end of the day bring relaxation. Unfortunately, standard LED lights and computer and television screens emit blue light—great for productivity but bad for sleep.

Crestron’s smart lighting systems help bring our bodies back in tune with their natural cycles. Your home’s lighting can gradually change throughout the day, both in intensity and color. 

Start the day with the sun’s rays filtering through your rooms and the lights tuned to a soft, yellow hue. Then, as the day progress, your lighting gradually changes to the focused blue tones. Finally, as evening descends, your lights transform to a warm red glow.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to try and cut down your screen time about one hour before bed.


Crestron lighting solutions not only create a healthier home environment, but also make everyday life a little easier. For example, pushing one button on your bedside control or the custom-engraved keypad by the door can turn off every light in your home.

Our certified technicians will also program buttons to create scenes that align with your unique lifestyle. If you regularly have friends, family, and business acquaintances over, one push on the “Entertainment” button, and the lights dim to a golden, candlelight hue. Additionally, the entertainment playlist begins playing throughout the home, and the outdoor landscape lighting emphasizes water features and your home's stunning architecture. 

The features and benefits of Crestron lighting are limited only by one’s imagination.
